"Pursuing a degree in Health Sciences was the best thing I could've done. This program aligns you with a admin professional who direct you along the way to graduate on time. Not too often do you see a university that cares as much as BSU does. I was enrolled in a "finish in 4" program and I can guarantee you it has lived up to its name. I am a proud graduate with a bachelors degree as of May 2019 and am moving forward to obtain my masters. Go Broncos!"

  • Degree: Creative Writing
  • Graduation Year: 2013
"I had a great experience with the English department at Boise State University during the four years I studied there. The faculty that I worked with were knowledgeable about the process of writing and had either been published in literary journals or published novels. The classes outside of creative writing were just as engaging for a student who loves literature and debating concerns of the times. I had one or two negative experiences but those were with adjunct faculty. Overall I would say that the quality of the program is high, and the amount of knowledge that I have is useful in getting further in writing."

"My college degree program was highly beneficial to me in my pursuit of my career. My advisors informed me about classes I could take to best prepare to apply to graduate school following my graduation and I was provided with many resources about career services and opportunities I could pursue if I so chose."

"Boise State University offers so many opportunities to explore your interests. During my undergraduate degree, I was really interested in traveling and studying Spanish in a foreign country. Boise State gave me the tools and resources I needed to study in Spain for one year. It was the best year of my undergraduate program. I accomplished the main goal I had set for myself thanks to the help of the on-campus study abroad office. Boise state also hosts events that teach you about new cultures, poetry readings, hosts local and non-local authors for readings. The school really provides opportunities for personal growth."

"This school has a lot of potential. My graduating year got the raw end of the stick, we never really got the classes we needed and if you failed a class it was hard to graduate on time. However, they have made great strides in trying to resolve this issue by redoing some of the curriculum in some of the classes and adding more classes that are diverse."

"Boise is a great little community to go to school in. BSU has great academics and professors, but it also has great, and unique, extracurriculars (a Quidditch and Beekeeping team to name a few). Other perks of being a Bronco that I have particularly enjoyed are checking out laptops from the school, and riding the city and intercounty busses for free with my student ID."

  • Degree: Social Sciences
  • Graduation Year: 2016
"I grew up in Idaho and I always told myself I'd go to college out of state, however, Boise State ended up offering me scholarships that I couldn't refuse. I was a little disappointed but after I started attending classes, getting involved in school activities and meeting new people, I was so grateful I'd decided to choose Boise State. The faculty was always super helpful, the sense of community was great, and the campus is beautiful. I feel as though some of the curriculum could have been tougher, but being in the social sciences, the curriculum is naturally less rigorous than say, economics. So, I could be wrong about the difficulty level. Overall, I'm very happy with my experience and would attend again in a heartbeat."

"Marian is a small school. This comes with pros and cons. The pros are that the staff to student ratio is small, meaning that students are given personalized instruction and attention. The cons are that the smallness of the school includes a lack of diversity in the student body and limited resources on campus. Overall, a good school and solid education."

  • Degree: Supply Chain Management
  • Graduation Year: 2016
"Boise State University offered a great program for Supply Chain Management. I feel that the program allowed me to understand the basics of Supply Chain, and has set me up for a great entry level position within Supply Chain. The curriculum was easy to manage, and was not too demanding. The professors were always available, and had a myriad of work experience under their belts that helped us better understand the applicable topics of Supply Chain, and how they apply to various industries."

"I am originally from Arizona and was recommended to attend Boise State University (BSU) by my High School Athletic Trainer. All I knew about BSU was that they had a top notch Athletic Training Program and that they were home of the Smurf Turf. I decided to take a campus visit and upon an 18 hour car drive, I realized that this campus and city would be my future home, The surrounding area is covered in lush green trees and grass with the Boise River running right next to the campus and the foothills literally in the backyard. The people within this community were all very friendly and helpful and finally the campus was clean and full of welcoming faces! Once my undergraduate career at BSU started in the Fall of 2013, I was blown away. I was quickly engaged in extracurricular activities and taken under the wing of a program director who has helped me every step of the way to my commencement. However, the help from Dr. Steiner was not all I loved. My second year at BSU, I was accepted into the Athletic Training Program and was in awe with how invested every professor in the Kinesiology Department was for each student. Every classroom I entered full of questions, I would leave with a clear understanding and a sense of accomplishment. Thanks to this excellent academic environment, I finished my degree in four years and attained the confidence and knowledge to be a competent and proficient Athletic Trainer. Attending BSU has been the best decision I have made and my time here has opened the doors for me to attend graduate school at Western Michigan University Fall of 2017. For anyone that is looking for a school that has a lively student population, academic success, opportunities outdoors, or the next step to their future, I highly recommend taking a visit to Boise, Idaho and ground yourself to the pristine foundation that Boise State University has to offer!"
